The season of Easter is upon us yet again dear Friends and as a Christian School we continue to reflect on the words of Christ, when He spoke to his disciples before his death on the Cross when He said “Do this in remembrance of me” – Luke 22:19. It is through these few words that made the disciples realise that the time of death that Jesus was talking, is indeed here and that the hour has come.
The Girls School Book Week began on Monday, 18 February!
This week-long event is an annual celebration of books, which have been written for young people. The objective is to inspire a love of reading.
A variety of activities were planned - to promote the joy of reading.
The St Peter’s kitchen, under the leadership of Sharon Rabilal, has grown from strength to strength. The most important aim of the kitchen is to serve nutritious food which is appealing to adults and especially children, while limiting waste and unnecessary costs. On a daily basis one thousand lunches and sandwiches are prepared. In addition to this it provides support for functions held at the school including sports teas, weekend sporting events and conferences.
The Grade 5 girls have started an inquiry-based learning unit based on plants in their Exploration and Learning/STEM lessons.
St Peter’s Girls Prep Music Department held its popular Musical Showcase recently. This was a magical evening for the performers and audience alike, as they shared the love of music, which embodies the spirit in this department of the School.
The Musical Showcase is a platform where the pupils have the opportunity to perform and thereby show off the musical skills that they have learnt through the year. They are encouraged to be creative and independent - the girls made the most of this occasion. The focus of the Showcase was on composition and arrangement.
Mr Simon Henderson, the current Head Master of Eton College (Eton, Berkshire, England), spent time as a gap year student, at St Peter’s Prep. This was years back when the current Rector of St Peter’s Prep, Greg Royce, began his tenure as Headmaster of the Boys School.
At ISASA’s request, Simon Sean Henderson was approached - asking him to deliver a keynote address at the ISASA and Independent Schools Heads’ Conference, which took place over the half-term last week.
